Clearly, the need for virtue in politics was of fundamental concern for ancient political philosophers. In light of the comments made in the Federalist and other writings from the Founding period, discuss whether or not the need for virtue is an integral part of American political thought. You should take into consideration the way in which human nature is regarded by the authors you make use of in your response. While the views on human nature expressed by Cicero (On duties or On the Commonwealth), Hamilton (in The Federalist), and Madison (in The Federalist) do appear to be quite different, is it possible to reconcile them in more general terms? If this is the case, examine how these views can be brought into accord in respect to political virtue.
